MDC chief charged with wife's murder
Harare - Surrounded by armed riot police, the official spokesman of Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change appeared in court yesterday in leg irons to face a charge of murdering his wife. Learnmore Jongwe, 28, told Harare magistrates' court that he stabbed his wife, Rutendo, 23, in a frenzy of jealousy after finding her having sex on a desk in a lawyer's office last week. Jongwe said the stabbing took place at their home in Harare later that day but he denied intending to kill his wife of 11 months. He went on the run for two days before giving himself up to police. According to well placed sources in the party, if Jongwe does not resign from the executive, his job as spokesman and his parliamentary seat, he will be told to leave. Scores of young supporters gathered at the court for a glimpse of their former hero. "We are so shocked," said a law student who did not want to be identified. "He was so brilliant and now he has brought shame to himself and this has damaged the party." Jongwe, from a rural peasant family, was a student activist at the University of Zimbabwe, where he took a law degree. He resigned his job with a legal firm to start working for the party shortly before parliamentary elections two years ago. Zimbabwe's official media have seized on the killing to claim repeatedly that it proves the opposition party is a violent organisation.
